Cameron McConville achieved a solid weekend of results recovering from a very difficult Qualifying (24th) after some brake balance problems to score solid points to run in the top fifteen in all 3 races.

Cameron : "This weekend was a real test. It started with a grubby head cold! We had brake and chassis balance problems early and worked as a Team to improve the car progress our position across the 3 races.

Good pit stops, smart strategy calls, some inspired set-up decisions for the wet. They were busy days in the office. I had everything on the line in recovery mode trying to get back to where the front of the field."

Race 1

Some of the brake and chassis balance issues were overcome for Race 1. A great start, a smart strategy (pitting Lap 21) and a rapid pit stop shuffled Cameron back into contention. He battled hard moving up an impressive ten positions to bring home a solid 14th.

Race 2

Wet conditions made Race 2 a real scramble. Despite some excessive wheel spin at the start Cameron excelled in the opening laps passing Mark Skaife, Garth Tander and a bunch of cars. As the track conditions improved the rear tyres overheated halting the rate of progress but in the end Cameron sailed home between Tander and Will Davison for a well-deserved 10th.

Race 3

On a dry track Cameron made a tardy start but quickly recovered the lost ground in the opening laps. The Team adopted an alternative pit strategy in Race 3 taking the stop early this time and clearing Cameron from the surrounding traffic. Glowing brakes and blazing headlights made a spectacular sight as McConville continued his battle with Jason Bright, Garth Tander and Steven Johnson. At the flag the WOW Commodore was 13th.
